Wonderful 103 Grade 2
Welcome Back Postcard
Mrs. McGowan in second Grade


Dear Parents of Students in Room 103,


     I am very happy to be your child's second grade teacher during the 2017-2018 school year.  This is my 33rd year as a teacher in the Minneapolis Schools. I have been at Hiawatha for 31 years teaching second grade.  

     My husband Jay teaches 5th Grade at Howe.  You may have a son or daughter in his class this year.

     We have two sons.  Our youngest is Jordan.  He's atttending graduate school in Rochester at the Mayo School of Health Sciences. Our son Josh is married to Kelsey. They both live in Fergus Falls, MN.  Josh is a band director and Kelsey is a nurse.  

     We enjoyed our summer by getting some home projects done, by using our Minnesota Historical Society membership to see many sites around Minnesota, and doing some traveling.  We went to Chicago to see the musical Hamilton, we visited family in North Dakota, and we enjoyed a trip to Yellowstone.

     I look forward to a great year with you and your child.


                                                   Kim Berg-McGowan
